, but yesterday's 20-city index show that prices in october rose by 4.3%, also showed since jane war prices are up 6.9% just this year, the largest gain since 2005. the numbers also put the housing market on track to mark the first gain since 2006. many analysts look to housing as the foundation, no pun intended, for the health of the broader economy. the school of thought is housing has to show signs of life before the economy can really improve. >>> let's move on to toyota. they're making headlines today. >> is that right. toyota has agreed to pay more than a billion over claims of sudden acceleration and brake problems in some of its vehicles. roughly 16 million toyota, electric you realilexus and sci are covered in the suit. believe it or not, it will not hurt the sales. toyota is expecting to sell over 9 million cars this year, up 22% over last year. >> jackie deangelis, thank you. >>> hollywood said a few records in theaters on christmas day. "jack reacher" number 4 "parental guidance" number 3 "the hobbit" number twon django unchained" and number one, "lesmis" made $18 million. >>> making n
, they took every rate and did it two years. this is not a matter if republicans are saying new york city we're going to vote no on everything. what we're doing is voting yes on every single tax rate going up. the third part is trying to reduce spending. last year during the budget agreements, we agreed that we would find a way to cut $1.2 trillion in spending. so that's still on the table right now. if it's not done, there's across-the-board spending cuts and a lot of americans say that's the wrong way to do it. >> you know what, there's an interesting poll that comes out of bloomberg and the question is about a mandate. i thought this was interesting. obama's re-election, the question goes, gives him a mandate to raise taxes on those making $250,000 plus. and the answer was yes, 65% of people polled said yes, in fact they do believe that he has a mandate there. with that polling, how does that make you change how you see your position as you go into the negotiation along with the fact that everybody's taxes are going up anyway at the end of this year? no matter what happens, you can do abs
will be announced this saturday in new york city. manzel is the favorite. >> the correct answer is johnny manzel will win the heisman trophy this year. that's all there is to it. >> bill: is he the freshman? >> he is going to win. >> bill: i'll take your word for it. i don't know any of them. i wouldn't know who to vote for. >> you don't get to vote. >> luckily, you don't get to vote. they will give it to the defensive player. collin klein had a very good year but nobody had a better season than johnny manzel. >> bill: i'll take your word for it. i'll tell you what, i have a vote on john boehner's baloney plan yesterday they threw out there on the table. i would love to get your take on it too at 1-866-55-press. my vote is no! my vote is laughing all the way. so, you know what was going on. so for the fiscal cliff negotiations so far it really is serious stuff because the last thing we can afford right now is another 2008 debacle where people lose their shirt because the federal government -- the politicians here membe
wear to you it's spectacular. and i actually just love watching major cities get destroyed in a completely fake and ridiculous way, which is what this movie is. >> anyone wearing a hat like this certainly would. but jack reacher, les mis and django. why these for christmas? >> they are a touch violent. here's the thing "jack reacher" is surprisingly funny and tom cruise is once again helping us through is the holidays by hunting down the bad guys. he's a movie star, nobody does it better and by the way, the dude does his own stunts. i couldn't believe it when i was watching it. and i laughed through the whole thing. now, "less miserables" is, of course, account movie adaptation of the very, very popular music musical which i knew nothing about. all the critics aren't completely in love with it, but i thought it was if ied with passionate performances and watching ann hathaway almost starving to death in front of my very eyes helped me kick start my holiday diet. >> come on, now. >> she's magnificent. i actually think we're going to see tons of oscar awards come out of this
congressman john yarmouth served and a lonely planet and ranked the number one city in america. thank you very much for joining us. >> thank, luke. come any time. >> i will ask you, are you surprised that you are in washington, d.c. today or you are not in washington, d.c. today and do you have plans on traveling back? >> i'm very surprise and no, i'm not going to come back unless there is a reason to. we have a big basketball here saturday for louisville and kentucky. that's the one consolation for me about the stalemate that i will be able to watch the game here. no, to me it looks like there is no way that there is going to be any deal done. most of the 230 get something done on the republican side. unfortunately i don't think anything can get through the house unless they are able to get a number of votes. we are able to provide them if we do what makes sense. >> in 2008 you voted against the first t.a.r.p. do you see that as something that will be necessary to happen for people to approve a deal or republicans will hold out until january 3rd to not have their fingerprints on any tax incre
with commissioner kelly. people may say here's two big city slickers trying to take the guns out of our hands. >> first of all, commissioner kelly and i have agreed. we. so what we wanted to show on christmas day, he came out to the national action network feeds the homeless and seniors and we stood together and said despite or differences, we agree on banning assault weapons, and we agree that there must be gun control, hoping to use that as a model, saying that there must be bipartisan agreement about gun control in washington. if we can get unlikely people to stand together, we can maybe lead to some sane gun policies in this country. >> certainly you're no stranger to end the fight to gun violence, but when we talk about what you're trying to do next month, what are your hopes there? >> my hopes are to raise with the teachers, randy weingarten of the federation of teachers, all talking about how we raise the point when mr. lapierre and the nra had the opportunity to say let us deal with some sane gun policies, let's talk about how people don't need a magazine with 100 rounds in it, that's
of snow in that city will be the story again in pennsylvania, upstate new york and new england. along the coast could see a slushy coating, but not as bad, just an inch or two if anything, will not see a winterr storm warning, just a lot of rain. could reach 60 miles per hour, so that in itself is a huge concern.pe eric: a lot to think about especially with those congresspeople for christmas trying to get back. daniel baker, joining me now by phone.fl what if there are a bunch of shut in airports across thema northeast and these congresspeople have to get back toyb washington, d.c., maybe foa vote. que will they be able to? >> it is unknown at this point.u this is a big storm and it hasn't even hit. the full impact of the d.c. area, a lot worse before it gets better. when looking at 40, 50 miles per hour in the new york area already seeing ddlays. the runways and taxi rate, we will not see dave and days we have seen in the past winter storms this will delay going on all day.e some of the delays they are experiencing in the northeast from chicago, dallas and the brunt of the storm real
has made a request. yes, is it a hefty $60 billion? but look at who was hit -- a big city that's the heart -- one of the heartbeats of america: new york. and a little community like crisfield. now matter h.j. you live in -- but no matter whether you live in new york city or in crisfield, maryland, you deserve the help of your government. and i say to my colleagues, let's think of the people we were sent here to represent. we weren't sent here to represent a bottom line. we were here to represent people. and i would hope that we would put into place -- that we would pass the president's request. we have great policies that were arrived at. and if you really want to honor senator inouye, let's honor the way his own code of conduct -- a gentle way, a civil way, a consensus builder, a bipartisan builder, and a worker to move this bill. senator inouye chaired the full committee on aeption pros these -- on appropriations these last couple of years. his own staff shared a story with me. and it is relative with me here. he said, i chair the defense committee -- subcommittee,ances and t
place practically every day in our cities. which hardly gets reported on. but the executive off the white house darn well knows what goes on in -- on the south side of chicago, inner city detroit and new york and los angeles. so jake, keep on asking those questions. we need a stronger press. >> bill: hey john, let me just explain my position here. i think it was a very fair question. you've heard me ask the question if you're a regular. and been very critical. and i've asked questions of jay carney at the briefing about why the president hadn't acted, for example, on the assault weapons ban. i'm just saying there is a way to ask that question which preserves the dignity of the media -- of the press and of the president of the united states. i had a long conversation after the briefing yesterday, for example, with peter baker from "the new york times" and peter said look, that was a legitimate question but he said the way i would have asked it would have been mr. president, you said sunday night that, as a nation, we
community outside of chicago that passed a city ordinance or you could not own a gun. that, a small community outside of atlanta passed a city ordinance requiring every household to own a gun. they had an exception for those who had a conscientious objection to owning a gun, but what happened? the crime rate skyrocketed. why? because the criminals knew that the citizens could not protect themselves. the criminals went to places where the criminals could carry out their activities and do their stealing and things without having the danger of someone trying to protect their property or their lives. the crime rate went up markedly in that area. the real solutions -- i am working on solutions. both parties are guilty of spending money we do not have. we have to stop that and we have to start looking at areas of the federal government where we can send those dollars back to the states. my job under the constitution as it was intended was to come into washington making sure we have a strong national defense, making sure our foreign affairs are at the best interest of this country, voting
